The Lower Angel, Warrington had Titanic Plum Porter Grand Reserve 6.5%, available on Saturday. Not bad at all and a pleasant surprise as the lower abv version of Plum Porter had disappointed of late.

A couple of enjoyable ales from the recent Little Plough Festive Beer Festival which majored on Acorn and Elland brews ...

Acorn Guiding Star 4.5%, a dark, malty and fruity ale. Very nice.

Acorn The 17th Noel 6.4%, dark, malty, fruity, slightly spiced and a little potent. Best of the festival.

Recently visited London for a concert at the Wembley Arena. Best pint of the day was Electric Bear Inspector Remorse 4.7% in the Holborn Whippet.

A porter which pours black with a beige head and has a roasted malt & chocolate aroma. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, caramel & toffee. Excellent!

The pub is well worth a visit if in the area. A cafe bar setting with cask, draught and bottled beers. Some food is available such as Pizza and Bratwurst. Only a two minute walk from Holborn tube station.

Exeter last week (racing trip) ...

The Quayside has a couple of places well worth a visit ...

The Samuel Jones, owned by St Austell Brewery, is a modernised former warehouse. Half a dozen ales were available in Pints, Two-thirds or thirds. Food is available from Noon until 9.30pm.

The Prospect Inn, which had very welcoming staff, had four cask ales available. We had an evening meal there and the food was excellent!

Favourite ales were ...

Hunters Brewery The Royal Hunt 5.0% (in George's Meeting House) - A copper coloured premium bitter. Aroma and taste, malt, toffee and dark fruits.

Bath Gem 4.1% & Mena Dhu 4.5% (in the Samuel Jones) - The former is a longstanding favourite, the latter a stout with smokey malts, liquorice, chocolate and oats.

South Hams Devon Pride 3.8% (in the Prospect Inn) - An amber bitter combining malt, fruit and caramel.
